The building at 602 Lagrange was
originally built between 1870 and 1875 by Ignatius Wernet and John Streicher.
From 1879 until 1933, the building housed a grocery store downstairs and
apartments upstairs. But, the end of Prohibition changed everything! Having
acquired one of the first liquor licenses in Toledo, the old neighborhood
grocery store became Bouton's Cafe and began selling liquor. Bouton's
operated continuously from 1933 until 1996, when Mickey Finn purchased the
property. Massive renovations, both inside and out, began in the fall of
1997. When the old siding was removed from the outside of the building,
three original windows, almost perfectly intact, were discovered. While
removing the paneling on the inside, a wooden staircase and an unexpected
archway leading to the building next door were discovered. The original tin
ceiling was found in fabulous condition after the old hung-ceiling was taken
down. The bricks on the walls were reconditioned and the inside of the
building was transformed back to its original beauty of the 1870s. An
antique bar-back, complete with a mirror, was found in a local antique shop
(thank you, Port Lawrence Antiques!) and was refinished, adding even more
authenticity to the look and feel of the Pub. Mickey Finn's Pub officially
opened for business on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1998. We offer a
well-stocked bar and delicious pub grub, with the finest in local and
